Premier Recap Week 4-6 - paiN locks in playoffs ahead of hectic final week

Week seven will be a busy one as 18 series will need to be played to determine the eight playoff teams.

Three more weeks of ESEA Premier Season 38 have with only a handful of matches played. This is due to an extremely busy NA calendar that has seen Fragadelphia 15, DreamHack Open September, two Cash Cups, and no less than six qualifiers take place since the start of September.

As a result, ESEA Premier has been put on the back burner with week four only seeing three series played, week five incredibly seeing no series played, and week six beginning to pick up the pace with fourteen series played.

Despite it being a slow portion of the season there were a number of important developments, with paiN clinching a spot in playoffs after besting Big Chillin and receiving a forfeit win over ChocoCheck. Meanwhile, GGPR and RBG have set themselves up for a strong shot at playoffs, claiming two wins each. 

This portion of the season hasn't been all positives though as Big Chillin have had a poor showing thus far with their stand-ins as the team are yet to win a map and are staring down Relegation. Additionally, stream team Mythic are in rough waters after going 1-2 with a win over Big Chillin and losses to ONET4P and ChocoCheck. If they want to avoid Relegation, they will need to claim wins over playoff contenders Party Astronauts and Strife.

As week seven is the final week of the regular season, it is absolutely brimming with important matches. Some of the most notable ones are listed below:
